|Everyone's favorite comic about the web-slinging superhero is now an action-packed, 3D videogame for the PlayStation. As Spidey (AKA Peter Parker), you'll trek through the streets of the Big Apple, taking to rooftops, sewer bottoms, and secret villainous hideouts in order to accomplish your many missions. You'll face such dastardly foes as Scorpio, Venom, and Rhino as you use Spidey's web-spinning ability to create traps of all shapes and sizes to capture your nemeses. The webs will also come in handy when you need to swing around the side of a building, scale a wall, or creep along a ceiling. The simple controls make the learning curve pretty easy, and SPIDER-MAN has a few different modes to keep the replay value and fun factor high. Records and Gallery Modes offer lots of secrets to uncover and challenges to meet (bring your thinking cap to the table for this one), while Kid Mode boils the action down to a more basic format for the wee ones. It's a tremendously fun game that's very faithful to its subject matter, but the key to succeeding is having real spider sense.|

A great super-hero game for it's time, and a favorite of mine on the PS1.
Spider-man for the PS1 gives you a 3rd person game with fighting, switch-puzzles, hostage rescuing, and races that equal some great action!
Cameo appearances. You'll see lots of marvel characters in this game, and not just the villains you'll fight. Occasionally quick cameo's will be made by characters like Black Cat and the Punisher. a nice treat for Marvel fans.
Lots of classic villains. You'll get lots of bad guys to go up against. The Lizard, Venom, and Mysterio to name a few.
Great Spidey-powers. Crawl on almost any surface. Zip lines to get you from floor to ceiling and wall to wall quickly. Webbing to tie up your foes, then trow them around. Web-gloves to power up your punches. Web domes to shield yourself and then explode like a bomb. This game did a great job at moving spidey-powers forward in game-play.
Lots of extra options. You get in-game suite and web power-ups. You also get a training mode with several options to practice your skills, and have single-player-skirmishes. You get other bonuses to unlock for you to view outside of the main game, and new suites you can unlock. Some of which come with extra powers so you can play through levels again with the upgraded outfit.
Corny one-liners are present. The comments coming from Spidey and his foes are cheesy, but cheesy like they should be. The voice acting is fairly well done, in the spirit of Saturday morning cartoon.
The sound is great and so is the music! The music will also change during the level as your situation becomes more intense then calms down again. A common thing now, but it was a relatively unused concept when the game was originally released.
Saving and loading is FAST!
The game-play itself. It's basically a 3rd person beat-em-up with a Marvel coat of paint, but it is fun. Spider-man looks and moves like he should. There's challenging moments, but not impossible moments. The tactics in the boss missions are varied, and the final mission has the uncommon twist in the game-play. At the time it came out, it was no doubt the best Spider-man game ever.
What could be better:
Controls are a little cumbersome (but not impossible). The controls make it hard to do sharp turns and aren't always the most accurate when you need to line up a shot. They're not terrible, but they could have been a little tighter. An option to control the camera would have been nice too. It is true you can go into a precise aiming mode that gives you a target reticle, and you can look around that way, but moving in between modes is a little slow, and you have to choose between camera control or character control.
Controls aside, the camera angles themselves can get in the way, and cause some disorientation. Again, it didn't make the game impossible to play, just a little annoying at times.
Although they mix up locations and nameless thugs you beat up, occasionally the combat does gets a little repetitive.
A great addition to your PS1 Library, and definitely one of my favourites for the system.
I'll just flat out say it: Spider-Man for the playstation is a great game. Activision and Neversoft have created the very first PSX Spider-Man game and it's a great one at that. I actually consider it one of those ''must own'' playstation games to have in you collection, but I'm aware that not everyone is a fan of the wallcrawler. But even so, if you like superhero's even just a little, let alone in a videogame, Spider-Man is top of the line...web line that is.
Spider-Man's gampelay mechanics never really got old for me. I loved playing as the webhead! It has some puzzle solving elements in it, regular beat-em up, and even a timed ''catch the badguy''. It's honestly a really fun game to play and it's one of the few playstation games that I've actually like playing through more than once. The bosses you fight in this game are fun to fight, and a lot of them are puzzle-esque as well, not just your typical run of the mill ''beat the bejesus out of him'' boss fight.
There is one rather tedious element to Spider-Man, and that's the repetition of enemies. They are all basically the same, just with different style. For example, for the first few levels you battle thugs. The next few levels you battle Lizard men, and then after that a bunch of symbiote monster creatures. The enemies never mix, instead it's just the same group of enemies for a specific group of levels. You may not think it's such a big deal, but after a while it tends to get rather tedious. A minor complaint though.
For the playstation, Spider-Man's graphics are great. However, due to the console's limitations, the detail can't get as in depth as the game does on the PC. Still, you can't blame the game for that. Also, there is always the graphical mess up that occasionally occurs. Over all though, awesome graphics.
The controls in Spider-Man are pulled off pretty good. I believe it was Neversoft and their Tony Hawk game controls that help out Spider-Man's controls in every way. They are very smooth, although you'll find yourself doing the wrong thing from time to time. Sometimes they aren't as responsive as they should be, but this is actually something pretty minor. The camera control could be slightly better, but it's hardly anything to really take note for.
I'm not going to rate the story. It's a comic book story at heart, full of that superhero cheesiness that we all know and love. However, I will say this, and this can be a good or bad thing depending on how you feel. Spider-man has a lot of unnecessary cameos appearing throughout cutscenes for virtually no reason at all. It's as though Marvel wanted to get nearly every major character to make a cameo just for the sake of showing off their characters on the playstation in 3D. No cameos by the Hulk or Iron Man though, but I believe Spider-Man does make some sort of witty comment about them in the game somewhere.
Which brings me to something else: the character of Spider-Man is brought to life on the playstation beautifully. Granted, it's not like the movie, but since this game was out before the movie by quite a long time, it's damn good.
Honestly, I'm not one to give out a score to the sound and audio. It's good. It has some nice music, and whatever. Need I say more?
I will just get to the point, This is a must have!
Story: This is easily the best story of any spider-man game the story is that Dr.Octopus' invention is stolen which is supposed to help mankind...yada yada,but spider-man steals it,guess who'd be in the crowd Peter Parker,Eddie Brock takes photos of the event and this Imposter Spider-man Brakes it he's pissed,so Eddies pissed so you get venom,there's a imposter spider-man and Dr.Octopus is a good guy?(Yeah Right).
Gameplay: The Gameplay is perfect Wall Crawling,Web Slinging,and moving around is easy with no Camera problems the fighting is simple but effective you have 4 ways to take down thugs Webs,Beating them with your fists,kicking them in the face,or jumping on top of them and pounding the crap outta their head (Grabbing).
Look: It's what you expect it looks good for a superhero game it looks comic like and the PS1 cut-scenes are great but the Dreamcast looks 10X's better and the N64's comic panel cut-scenes are fun.
Overall: This game is perfect for any Spider-man fan or comic book fan if you don't like spidey don't worry there's tons of Cameos from other Marvel heroes so I say pick this up over any other spider-man game
I had a Playstation when I was nine years old, and my neighbor had this game in a blank jewel case. I thought 'that look's interesting', I asked him about it and he lent it to me for a couple weeks. I ended up having it for a couple months. This game introduced me to the world of Spiderman. Fighting Venom was one of my favorite battles in the game, and the storyline was great throughout. In any gaming franchise, the best one is most often the one that started it off. This is the case for spider-man. It was very original and provided a building-block for the later spider-man games to be built upon.
